‘Young Sheldon’ fast approaching its end
‘Young Sheldon’ Season 4 had a late start this year due to the pandemic led lockdown. Even season 3 finale was repurposed as the premiere episode of season 4. There came a cute surprise for ‘The Big Bang Theory’ fans, apart from Amy’s cameo. The ‘Young Sheldon’ premiere episode revealed the name of her and Sheldon’s son — Leonard Cooper. ‘Young Sheldon’ Season 4 mildly addressed the biggest continuity issue with ‘The Big Bang Theory’, which is with the depiction of Sheldon’s dad George Sr. Sheldon, who was presented as a bad father, whereas his depiction in the previous seasons was different.
Most of its characters were already known, even before ‘Young Sheldon”s debut, thanks to Sheldon’s regular references to his life in Galveston in ‘The Big Bang Theory’. His dad never appeared in the parent sitcom because he had died when Sheldon was just 13. Despite this, we already knew a lot about him because the theoretical physicist had painted a very bad picture of his dad. We also know the reason why he disliked his father.
Mild signs of breaking apart in ‘Young Sheldon’ Season 4, Episode 5
On ‘The Big Bang Theory’, Sheldon had narrated the story of him accidentally catching his dad cheating on his mother. Sheldon’s childhood tales contained one tragic incident. He told in one of the episodes that his dad was cheating on his mother shortly before his death. Sheldon told Penny that once he unexpectedly came home early from college and accidentally walked in on George having sex with another woman. This was the reason why he started knocking thrice.
But, George Sr. in ‘Young Sheldon’ was shown as a good father and a decent husband till episode 5 of season 4. The way ‘Young Sheldon’ was continuing, we thought this tragic scene will come very late. But now, with this episode of season 4, it seems like ‘Young Sheldon’ has dug its own grave.
We saw mild signs of George breaking apart from his marriage in the fifth episode titled “A Musty Crypt and a Stick to Pee On” of season 4. Young Sheldon has officially started college. This tragic experience should be happening very soon since he didn’t spend all four years during that time. Mary and George Sr. spend the next few days in San Antonio, as one of the episode’s plots, for the latter’s coaching conference. But we noticed that Sheldon’s father deliberately didn’t invite his mother to the trip, which was suspicious. Moreover, Mary got to know about the trip when George’s co-worker accidentally let it slip.
This shocked Mary and resulted in a conflict between the couple. Mary joined her husband on their drive to San Antonio, but they continued to bicker. On the other hand, George’s co-worker and his wife who joined the couple on the trip were the total opposite of the pair. They’re all affectionate and understanding. These love birds initially irritated Mary and George Sr. as it became clear that both were in a subtle but tensed argument, the other couple took it upon themselves to try and help.
‘Young Sheldon’ to end with this tragic incident in Sheldon’s life
The other couple emphasized the meaning of communication and compelled Mary and George to say something genuinely nice about each other. This concept was completely foreign to them. Mary tells George how hard he works even sacrificing his personal dreams for the family. This is truly how George is on ‘Young Sheldon’ and purely due to this reason, it’s so difficult to imagine him heartlessly cheating on Mary.
George gets teary-eyed, but he had a guilty look on his face rather than being touched by what he heard. It felt like he’s regretting something he’s done wrong. Maybe that could be the start of his secret extra-marital affair. And if that happens at this stage, it is the beginning of the end of ‘Young Sheldon’.
Perhaps, CBS has started to script the end of ‘Young Sheldon’ because it couldn’t attract as many fans as ‘The Big Bang Theory’ did. But we hope they don’t end the show on a tragic note.
